PA Releases Public Works Employment Verification Form
Pennsylvania’s Public Works Employment Verification Act took effect January 1st, 2013. Under this law, all employers all contractors and subcontractors working on a project of over $25,000 and paid for in whole or in part by public funds, must E-Verify new employees within 5 days of hire.
The verification form was released in late December and can be found on the PA DGS site at the following address: http://www.dgs.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/community/construction_and_public_works/1235/public_works_employment_verification/1357211.
In addition, there is an accompanying Statement of Policy on the DGS site which might help employers better understand the administration and enforcement of the law.
Penalties for non-compliance can include suspension or debarment from the state contracting process, depending on the number of instances, and discretionary civil penalties, amounting from $250-$1000 for each violation.
